Royals are a disgrace - appointing a convicted cheater Steve Smith as captain

Recommended Posts

What's so big deal? he hasn't fixed games like amir or many our past legends have done. Tampering has been done by many. What about faf then? he never got banned and is still captain of south african side even after being caught twice or thrice lol. Smith got banned for year and is back but still people crying.

Served the ban, which a team like Ind may not have even imposed on its players for ball tampering .... Time to move on 

Served his ban and rightly allowed to play, but ball tampering was directly instructed under his leadership, it's just poor ethics and gamesmanship from Royals management, but no surprise since Shane Warne has been barking on and on how everyone been harsh on Smith

Really good decision. Smith is a quality captain and great leader he has proved his mettle as captain when he took dud team like pune into finals in  2017.

Never doubt his workmanship. Rahane on the other hand has been suckig balls as captain quite some time now. Absolutely deserves that sacking.

Technique frawd doesn't even deserve place in the squad let alone the captaincy.

It is bit too much to call Steve Smith scum.Unlike many players in past he atleast admitted to his guilt.Tell me did Sachin, Dravid or any other player past or present admitted to tampering.

 

It is not the biggest crime , one year ban was harsh enough.

Because Sachin, dravid didn't tamper.

He served his ban and he is a current player in the franchaise. What is the big deal ?. Icf has a lot of self serving fake moral outrage lol its basically folks who want to reinforce their own 'good person' feeling that show this often.

While I think RR could have waited for the next season or may have waited till Australia reinstated him as the captain but I dont think it's a big issue especially considering RRs position atm and their meek captain rahane going down the gutter

Icc cleared sachin of tampering after that. You KNOW that but you think some morons here will believe your lies 

 

 Lol not only do trolls like you lie but it's hillarious to see gullible people swallow that lie

This dude thinks sachin removing an obvious stuck grass blade is the same level as systematic tampering over a long time. SMH

Some here are making the excuse that SRT was removing grass from the ball. Maybe that is true. But videos don't portray what the player's motive is. It only shows what happened. He had long finger nails like a lady and that increased the suspicion. In the other case, Dravid accepted the match fine without making a fuss. He can also claim that he was not making a deliberate alteration to the ball aka tampering. But he chose the high road and didnt complain and took it on the chin.

 

In Smith's case, he was doing it with deliberate intent or atleast showed poor leadership so that Warner and Sandcroft could take over. He paid his dues and let him return to cricket. He can also tell everyone that Warner started it like a child and get away with it. He didn't and accepted full responsibility. Unlike some little big man, he didn't whine and create a controversy.

What an effing disgraceful desicion to appoint Steve Smith as captain of an IPL 

 

A captain who sanctioned systematic ball tampering 

Last year RR didn't play him for same reason and just after his ban has ended he is back as captain. Not surprised though, as someone mentioned it is a perfect combination - a previously banned team has a previously banned captain. The standards are low. The management too are okay with such leaders captaining RR. Fair enough in their views but imo this is a very bad move to have a cheater as a captain.

There is no excuse as ICC itself cleared sachin. But pak fans like you have always lied about the incident

Nothing can be more disgraceful than your own getting suspended for spot fixing. That both proven fixing teams in IPL - CSK and RR were allowed back in the league is in itself a disgrace, can't expect them to do any better.

Csks guy was caught betting with team combination. Rr had players spot fixing. Get your facts right.

Precisely. I am not amazed at this fake moral outrage here the guy served his time and is a player if there is a problem dont play him lol. I would say Smith did take resposibility and did not cry and ask his board to support him and help him out of the predicament.

Considering RR's position, the move was inevitable.. Only problem with that is Smith may not be available after Apr 26. All Aussie/Eng world cup players return. They have to go back to Rahane again

@beetle do you think CSK fixed a game or did spot fixing ?

He lied about mayippan ....who was found guilty .

Mayeppan was a part of team management and he called him just an enthusiast to save his ass.

Meiyappan was to be seen in every team meeting of CSK. What a noble person he is to just indulge in betting with the kind of info he was privy to. :phehe: Ye to Kaliyug ka Raam hai :adore:

When did I say fixing?

I mentioned lying in court under oath.

 

As for your question....if the beloved son in law of the owner attends team meetings, is seen in the player dugout and is found to be involved in betting which involves big money....itvis not beyond them to do anything to meet their needs.

Not towing your line does not make one pakistani. 

Then you dont know who that poster is. But then for some reason CSK fans are so starving for attention that they gel with known trolls and known Pak posters as long as they pretend to support CSK. Every wondered why known trolls and known Pakistanis always support CSK?

@Vilander @velu Apparently not accepting SRT (pbuh) as a god makes you an infidel and pakistani. Waiting for the "CSK fan" to virtually behead me :winky:

No, but knowing who you are make a you a Pakistani. We have all seen your posts on the Indian team.

 

You can fool the gullible csk fans just like other trolls fool them. I feel sorry for those like @Vilanderso many trolls pretend to be csk fans
